Several new synthesis techniques are described for the design of tapered corrugated waveguide low-pass filters. Previous techniques are based on image-parameter methods which are both nonoptimum and difficult to apply to new specifications. The new synthesis methods give filters which can be constructed to work directly from dimensions generated by a computer. The impedance tapering implies that the terminating impedance transformers used in the image-parameter designs may be either eliminated or reduced in length.
